Phil Harrison takes the reigns at Infogrames

phil I don’t know Phil Harrison, but let’s face it; how well do you really know anybody? In that sprit, congratulations to my good friend Phil Harrison for being named the president of Infogrames.

Harrison recently left Sony and will be working at Infogrames to implement social gaming initiatives and to turn the company (which owns over 50-percent of Atari) around. Says Harrison,

“This is the perfect time to join Infogrames and help shape the future of Atari – one of the industry’s legendary brands. As the game business moves rapidly online I believe we have an outstanding opportunity to create amazing network game and community experiences for players the world over.”

You can do it, Phil. You can do it.
